Looking at our prosperity 8 décembre 1999
Par Dr. Daniel Ypkemeule - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This little book is true little gem about people that have less than nothing. All they have are their memories and sweet small desires, translated in exceptional stories. A masterpiece to be confronted by our greedy way of living. A must to read

I enjoy this story so much I buy it as a gift for friends. The story helps to maintian focus on what is important in this world, when possessions and ambition confuse and distract. This is true wisdom of the heart.

I Salute You Oh Cantadora, and Thank You for Your Precious Gift 25 avril 2007
Par Gopal Ramasammy-Cook - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Being a student and practitioner of story, I guess I'm always subconsciously looking out for interesting stories that have some meaning or application in life. After reading Joseph Campbell and Christopher Vogler, I have also developed a keen interest in Jungian archetype theory and its application to the crafting of stories.

These were probably the elements that caused me to pick up the copy of this wonderful little book I found at the local second-hand bookshop (Obz Book). From an inscription in the front of the book, I gathered that it had been given as a Christmas gift in 1995 to someone called Colleen by her niece, Sarah.

To quote the author: "Stories that instruct, renew, and heal provide a vital nourishment to the psyche that cannot be obtained in any other way." Clarissa Pinkola Estés is a psychoanalyst in the Jungian tradition, an award-winning poet, author of Women Who Run with the Wolves and other works, a human-rights activist, and a Cantadora, or keeper of the stories. In A Gift of Story, she draws on the storytelling traditions of her Spanish-Mexican and immigrant Hungarian origins to weave a wonderful tapestry of short tales, both biographical and allegorical, that all link up, often in surprising ways. She sets out to answer the question: "What is 'enough' of a gift?" Starting with the story of the dying Bal Shem Tov, and ending with an account of her aunt's experiences in wartime Hungary which runs through the rest of the book (to say any more would spoil some of the twists and surprises), the author's commentary brings home some valuable life-lessons without coming across as too transparently didactic.

My only 'regret,' if one can call it that, is that the book is so short. I felt a few more stories would have been welcome. But having said that, perhaps its compactness allows one to take in the breadth of the experience in one comfortable read.

At the end of the book, the author issues a call for action - a call to give the gift of story, and to facilitate this process of story-giving for others by helping them tell their life stories. After reading the book - and you'll see why if you read it too - I imagined this chain of gift-giving stretching from some unknown stranger, to an old Hungarian man, to an old woman, to her niece, to Sarah, to Colleen and finally to me.

Today I will continue the chain by inscribing it with a message, and giving it as a gift to someone I love. I shall do so with a request that when she has read it, she should pass it on. Perhaps some day my old second-hand copy will reach you. But in the meantime I recommend that you get a copy for yourself, and start giving the gift of story.

I don't get it 22 août 2012
Par Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I do not relish writing a tepid review about one of Dr Estes's books, but I was disappointed by this. It is certainly well-written, and the book itself is nicely produced. But I do not get how the story illuminates what is enough, unless enough is just simply to love people close to us so much that we are willing to give away all our possessions. Ie, that completely devoted love for another person is enough. That is enough, of course, but this story has always stuck me as a sad example of that.

Wait - that is not enough. That's the sweetened version of what we're supposed to say is enough, but ask any therapist, or anyone who's ever walked into an Alanon meeting: That kind of love is not enough to sustain a healthy person. That blind devotion/give everything kind of love is an unhealthy kind of love in the real world.

I have heard the story this book tells before. Estes mentions that this is an old story in the beginning of the book. It is about a poor young couple during Christmas. They have almost nothing, but they are so resolved to give each other a gift that the woman sells her beautiful hair to be able to buy a chain for her husband's watch. He sells his watch to get a comb for her beautiful hair. They don't know this, of course, until they present each other the gifts.

This story has always made me sad. Why do they have to give material gifts? Can they not show their love for each other in any other way than to give a gift - a material, purchased gift?

Maybe this book is about having enough. If it is, this is not my version of enough. To me, it seems more like being about giving away too much. Generosity is wonderful and needed and critical to an active spirituality, but it is quite possible to give away too much, and to leave yourself impoverished and depleted and no longer of much use to the world. Remember "The Giving Tree?" But I digress.

These people would have been richer if they had not given what they chose to give. The watch chain and the hair comb have always been images of futility to me - like a sore reminder that trying to make things have value can deeply backfire. People have value; things don't. Their gifts were misguided choices that impoverished them further. They did prove their love to each other, and that's all-important, but I would have prefered a story that had them demonstrate their love for each other in a way that did not seem so futile.

Maybe I'm just being dumb about this. Maybe I am not "deep" or wise enough to get the story.

At any rate, whether you like the story or not, if you want a nice printed version of this sad story, this is the book to get. It just does not cover my expectations of describing what is enough.

The gift of sharing wisdom 8 avril 2011
Par Christina - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes has a special gift. It isn't only the story which is wise and rich, a jewel itself, but the way how it is told.
Dr.Estes is a rare "master storyteller" and she has such a power of expression. There's also deep love and warmth in her voice. Her stories refresh, cure and are very, very nourishing for the soul.
